This report presents some of the key results from the two new blocks of questions included in the 2022-23 Campus Travel Survey. The first block includes questions to assess the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and other micro-mobility users. The second block ask respondents questions about incidents related to bike theft and vandalism on campus. 

To assess pedestrian safety on campus respondents were asked if they had been hit while walking on campus since the beginning of fall quarter 2022 and if so, to select the mode they were hit by. The set of questions related to fall and crash of bike and micro-mobility users was shown only to respondents who indicated that they were associated with UC Davis during the 2021-22 academic year. The report presents results of questions related to safety of bike and micro-mobility users, including questions on type of fall or crash related incidents, and reasons for their fall or crash while using a particular mode. Respondents were also asked to indicate the location of fall or crash on the campus. 

The block on bike theft asked respondents if they were the victims of bike theft or vandalism during the year 2021-22. The questions were designed to better understand the situations under which the bike was stolen, whether it was locked indoors or outdoors, type of object the bike was locked to, and the type of lock used.
